Posted December 8, 2011 by M.H. Williams

Frozenbyte, the Finnish developer of Trine and Shadowgrounds, has announced that the original Trine has sold 1.1 million copies.  Its sequel, Trine 2 is currently available on PC and Mac through Steam and other digital retailers.  The original title was released in 2009 and most of the units have been sold through Steam and the Humble Bundle, with additional major sales coming from the PlayStation Network and the Mac App Store.

Frozenbyte has also opened its Humble Store to allow for direct sales of Trine 2.  All copies of Trine 2 currently use Valve’s Steamworks, meaning every copy is registered on Steam.  The developer is planning non-DRM and Linux versions is 2012.

”We have done our best to ensure that everything goes well and the initial reception has been positive, so we have high hopes for Trine 2. It's the product of two years of hard work and a lot of heart and soul, and we hope this shows. To all the gamers out there - I hope you enjoy the game!” said Lauri Hyvärinen, Frozenbyte CEO.

With the PC/Mac version of the game already available, Frozenbyte also has other versions of Trine 2 coming.  The PlayStation Network will get the game on December 20, Xbox Live Arcade will receive the game on December 21, later in 2011 on the Mac App Store, and sometime in 2012 for Linux.
